       The SVDP donation truck will be here at St. Mary’s the weekend of October 17th-18th.  This will be your last opportunity this year to donate your unneeded or no longer wanted, yet useful, items to the poor. Start filling your bags and boxes now with coats and boots, dishes and cups, toys and tools, anything that can be useful to others.  Furniture may be donated as long as the item can be handled by one person—small stools, small chairs, small tables, small rugs, etc.   All items need to be cleaned, repaired and in the case of small appliances and toys, in good working order. SVDP does not have facilities to clean, mend or repair.  The truck will be parked at St. Mary Church from Saturday, October 17th from 4:30 pm until very early on Monday, October 19th . The Truck itself will be open all hours.

      FROM THE PASTOR: September 19-20, 2020
      This Sunday is the Twenty-Fifth Sunday in Ordinary Time. The Gospel comes to us from Matthew 20:1-16a. Jesus tells his disciples a parable about a generous landowner. He hires laborers at dawn, at nine o’clock, at noon, at three in the afternoon and at five o’clock. At the end of the day, he pays all of the laborers the same wage. Those hired first were not pleased with this. The landowner, however, has cheated no one. Those hired first agreed to work for the usual daily wage. They received the agreed upon wage. The landowner is free to do as he wishes with his money. He is free to be generous to those hired later in the day.

      FROM THE PASTOR: Weekend of September 12-13, 2020
         This Sunday marks the 24th Sunday in Ordinary Time. The first reading from Sirach (27:30 – 28:9) and the Gospel reading from Matthew (18:21-35) both speak to us of the need for forgiveness. More specifically, we cannot ask the Lord to forgive us if we are unwilling to forgive others.
